[caption id="attachment_5592" align="alignleft" width="425"] Corona Virus[/caption] Dear Valued Stakeholder, in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that has reached our shores and following the decision by our President, H.E. Cyril Ramaphosa, declaring a National Disaster, we assure you that we have taken every precautionary measure and will continue to do so to help limit the spread of the virus. We wish to reassure you that our highest priority remains the health and safety of our Stakeholders and Team Members and we are implementing appropriate action to ensure that there is appropriate hygiene standards in all SANSA facilities for anyone using our facilities. Unfortunately, we have had to postpone many of our planned meetings and events, including SpaceOps 2020. We have also restricted visits to our facilities by the public and external clients, as an added precautionary measure. We remain  committed to ensuring that we will continue to offer services with minimal disruption to our customers; except where it is beyond our control.

First of its kind industry body to grow South Africa’s geospatial sector When we think of space, we generally think of SciFi shows such as Star Trek, or humanity’s current plans to send manned missions to Mars. Most people don’t think about space as a business enabler, and yet that is exactly what it has become over the years. The convergence of earth observation, space navigation and positioning, telecommunications and location intelligence is generating massive opportunities for companies in every sector. Observing the Earth, location and geospatial intelligence have rapidly gravitated to the core of digitisation and innovation. In fact, the geospatial intelligence domain across the world is set to grow exponentially as more and more business data is integrated with location information across enterprise level functions. This rapid rate of growth can be accredited to the continuous technology advancements in the industry, the democratisation of geospatial information and integration with advancing digital technologies resulting in innovative business models such as Uber.
